progress or lack thereof on the looming fiscal cliff. david: live with the very latest proposals, if there are any real ones. >> all of this with a sense of optimism from both sides. no movement to secure a deal. wanting immediate tax rate hikes on the wealthy on the spending cuts. latest offer, $1.4 trillion in new tax revenue down from a previous offer of 1.6 trillion. and willingness to begin corporate tax reform. house speaker john boehner says that deal fell short. speak of the president's plan to avert the fiscal cliff still does not meet the two standards as laid out the day after the election. the plan does not fulfill his promise to bring a balanced approach to solving this problem. >> it is not a realistic position to say that we can resolve this by extending tax cuts for the wealthiest americans and vaguely promising that we will lean additional revenue by closing loopholes and counting deductions in a way everyone knows is unrealistic. >> republicans continue to refuse to raise tax rates on wealthier families, the official claims a concession would open a pathway to a
